I attached my Gopro camera to the under side of my Jeep so I could see how much deflection I could see with this new set up.

Clutch Finally

So after a failed trip to the local Napa store I resorted to searching the internet for some more ideas. After not finding what I was looking for I remembered an old set of Stainless steel brake lines that I has on the Jeep at one time.

You can also get the line from Advance Adapters to mate directly to the slave too. You can get it in a 42″ or a 60″ length.

I had purchased then ten years ago and changed them because I heard of them failing at unpredictable times while off-road. I had to take off the brake collar to attach one to the Advance Adapters clutch adapter, but I will have an extra to keep in the spare parts bag for trail side fixes. They did end up a little short to reach the slave cylinder but I needed a rigid line to mate it to the slave cylinder anyway.

After getting the line hooked up I found that the material I used to make the mount was a little thin. But with using the CNC Plasma to make the mount I just whipped out two more pieces and welded them together to create a 1/2 inch thick piece. This really helped stiffen the whole setup.
